Heresy @ HATE: Doomsday campaign – Part 6: Warlord Titan Battle!

It would be fair to say that this month’s game for the Horus Heresy 30k narrative escalation campaign really jumped up to a whole new level as I brought out my entire House Atrax Questoris Knight force and some Mechanicum allies to fight a 3,000pt game against a freaking WARLORD TITAN!

In the end, House Atrax Knights sacrificed themselves beneath the guns of the Warlord Titan Responsio Proportionata in a futil attempt to allow Archmagos Draykavac to escape to the extraction point. In keeping with my usual poor performance this was yet another crushing defeat my House Atrax traitor force, but I had a great time playing due to the spectacle of the scale of the game – not only was my opponent a great sport, but the work he had put into the Warlord was staggeringly impressive – just take a look at the pictures:

    Oh my! That thing is bloody awesome. Great paint job on it too. And it’s like the size of a (not so) small child.

  2. Wow. What a force to be reckoned with

    Wow! But did it actually move much, or interact with the battlefield? That’s my big gripe with these super-sized models. They’re so big that they rarely need to move, so the game actually devolves into a lot of dice rolling and rulebook flipping while the model itself stays stationary.

      No – barely moved other than to disengage from close combat to shoot the crap out of me more! To be honest though we didn’t pick a scenario to require it to move. You can potentially box one in so that it cannot move locking it into combat, but that takes a lot of luck, the right terrain & good positioning. The main real choice is the target priority order to minimise threats. It was a fun if deliberately silly game. All said now I have played one under 7th ed, I would be interested in playing again under 8th ed to see the contrast.
